a newly married couple

Being an army wife is quite different from any other. It gives numerous beginnings and a myriad ends. This story is about beginning of a new chapter.

When I got married two and a half years ago, little did I know what my life would bring me as an army wife. It started with a 10 month separation immediately after marriage. The months seemed like years. In the new house, the only person I knew the most, i.e., my husband, was miles away from me.

Emmanuelle Charpentier of France and Jennifer Doudna of the U.S. have made history today. They have been contributing to the field of science for a very long time but today they have inadvertently contributed to the idea that women can do wonders and become mistresses of their own fortunes if given equal opportunities.
